Sente Technologies (also known as Bally Sente, Inc.) was an arcade game developer. Founded as Videa in 1982 by several ex-Atari employees, the company was bought by Nolan Bushnell and made a division of his Pizza Time Theatre company in 1983. In 1984 the division was acquired by Bally Midway who continued to operate it until closing it down in 1988. The name Sente, like Atari, is another reference to Bushnell's favorite game, Go and means "having the initiative."
This game can be converted to any other Bally Sente game by exchanging a small plug-in board and control panel. This series includes according to the manufacturer Gimme A Break, Chicken Shift, Goalie Ghost, Snacks 'n Jaxson, Off The Wall, Stocker, Hat Trick, and Trivial Pursuit.

Mini Golf, as the name implies, is an 18 hole game of miniature golf that you play on the computer. The holes have the various enhancements you would expect on a good miniature golf course, including loops, waterfalls, warp holes, electric barriers, spinning triangles and discs, whirlpools etc. In the arcade version, you need to earn additional holes through good play on the previous holes. In the home version it's more about challenging yourself and others to attain the lowest possible score.

missing kids images.
So while I was playing this for a video, I pressed tab whilst figuring out controls. I saw a thing for DIP Switches, I decided to press it and found the weird missing kids screen enabled option. Curiosity got the best of me and I switched it on. Who Are Those Kids? Were They Ever Found? Why Is This In A Mini Golf Game? If you have any answers please tell me as I'm trying to solve this mystery.

Plays Like I Remember In The Arcades!
This is a fun game and plays well, but isn't easy.
The controls are as follows:
Arrow keys used to shoot ball. Use whichever arrow key you need to direct the ball through the course.
Like I mentioned it isn't easy, but very fun and addicting.
As a side note to the previous reviewer, I've found that all the games I've tried here so far play very well and most of the controls used are simple but vary from game to game. The standard controls used to start most games are the 5 key to insert coin and the 1 key to start the game. Most games use the CTRL key and arrow keys, but some others use some of the letter keys on the keyboard. Some of the games here breakdown the controls, but the ones that don't I usually play around with until I get it to work. I hope this helps out the previous reviewer.

I'm assuming these are supposed to be playable on the site. I have yet to get any to play. If anybody has, please explain what my tiny brain is missing.
